What materials did you use? Silk Dupioni, Burda 7628, thread. I also wet the fabric and wrinkled and twisted it to give it more structure.

What are you most proud of? I never wore dresses! Thought I was the wrong shape with no waist. Now I know I can wear them and they give me shape. Addicted.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have a go! Just add some extra seam allowance where a normal pattern would not fit and adjust accordingly.
